2014 National UNITY Conference News

The following story is from a July 15 UNITY News Release.


More than 1,400 Native youth leaders converge
in Portland, Oregon for the National UNITY Conference

July 15, 2014, Portland, OR – More than 1,400 Native American youth from throughout the U.S. gathered to participate in the annual National UNITY Conference at the Oregon Convention Center on June 28 – July 2, 2014. The five-day agenda was packed as youth addressed the theme “Healing and Empowering Aspiring Leaders with Tradition and Heritage”. Many of the youth who attend the conference represent the 145 UNITY affiliated youth councils from 35 states.
 
The National UNITY Council, made up of youth representatives from affiliated youth councils, hosted the proceedings, as they were responsible for developing the agenda, which tackles various youth issues in Indian country.  Native youth face similar challenges as all American youth but statistics show the issues such as suicide, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, and high school drop out rate are dangerously amplified.  Once the conference was called to order after the ceremonial lighting of the UNITY Fire, youth were immersed in leadership development through educational keynotes, activities, and workshops focusing on the areas of spiritual, physical, social, and mental development.
